WISPs or wireless internet service providers are one of the fastest growing sectors of the telecommunications industry. Fueled largely by internet customers discontented with their cable and DSL providers and built by entrepreneurs, WISPs are gaining a foothold in an industry once dominated by only the major players such as Verizon, AT&T and Time Warner.
ISP Supplies has built their business on providing more than products to their customers. In addition to switches, routers, antennas and microwave radios used by WISPs, ISP Supplies sponsors monthly Mikrotik RouterOS and Ubiquiti airMAX training sessions to enhance their customers’ abilities to use these products in a more efficient manner that produces more reliable networks and a faster ROI.
WISPs use privately built wireless networks to distribute the same services as the majors, including internet access, phone and television using low cost wireless networks they build and operate themselves, often in grossly under served urban or sparsely populated rural areas.
ISP Supplies distributes products from two primary manufacturers, Ubiquiti and MikroTik which together have disrupted the industry by producing carrier grade wireless telecommunications products and powerful Ethernet routers that allow WISPs to distribute carrier class services for pennies on the dollar compared to conventional copper and fiber networks. These products use unlicensed wireless spectrum, and TDMA , time domain multiple access protocols to provide low latency connectivity as well as network protocols such as MPLS to scale their networks infinitely. These networks are typically self-financed by the owners and operators who also many times provide both the installation and customer services for their provider networks. The end result is the ability to deliver triple play services in areas that were previously under served or not served at all, fast installations and customer service unrivaled in the industry. As a customer, the incentive to buy services from a small private company whose livelihood depends on customer satisfaction compared to becoming just a number with one of the majors is a no-brainer. This is one of the secrets to the success of this industry.
